You have to be more specific, Dave. Is it food related? Or gift like white elephant stuff? Or something a bit more risque?

You guys dont have bring and share in America :blink:

Its like where loads of people get together to have a meal or picknick or something.

The rules are that everybody brings something and its shared...from food...to utensils, to perhaps some entertainment....

I think you guys call these sorta things..."cook-outs" :huh:

We call em bbq's if your grilling, if its just a gathering we call em potlucks. Depends if you have a theme or not. If your gonna take chips take some damn dip. Thats a pet peeve of mine. Uum if you take a beverage take a few types not just a liter of pop. Hmm a relish tray sounds nice.. Just depends Dave...

Yeah, we call them pot lucks, too. When we used to do these things in college I would always bring a 2 liter bottle of lemonade, since so many people were bringing soda. Usually that lemonade disappears faster than anything else, especially if there are a lot of parents with their children there. Most parents appreciate having a caffeine-free option if they're out with their kids.:laugh:

we call em pot lucks up in these parts in canada ... LOL ... it's usually good to know what to bring .. would be kinda of a crappy bring and share if everyone comes with the same thing ... booze and meat are always good

You know here at work we have potlucks a lot. I hardly ever participate. I get grossed out easily. Sweaty Potato Salad, dripping 7layer bean dip, overcooked Swedish meatballs..... Yuck..

We do this at work all the time. Everyone pretends to like everyone else's dish. Sometimes there is something good though.

I bring different things. Just depends on my mood. I have an appetizer that uses feta cheese and roasted red bell peppers that is pretty good. I make a blueberry salad that gets recipe requests. Those are the 2 most common that I take. Or I will bring a pickle tray that has pickles, olives, pickled baby corn, and whatever else I can find at the store that looks good and is pickled. Okra, peppers, etc......

Our church has a pot-luck lunch every 4th Sunday. It's great. Right after the morning service, we all head into the Fellowship Hall for food. It's amazing.

I make the BEST baked mac and cheese ever--so that's usually what I take. I don't eat it--but it's always gone in a flash.

I hate potlucks though--I'm a super picky eater and I never know what's in the stuff...plus..I'm always afraid someone didn't wash their hands before they cooked....blech...

At work we call those Pot Luck meals.. everyone on the team brings some food...

but going to a house for a UFC party.. or party in general, I provide food at my house.. everyone else brings their booze.. and the same at my instructors home..we will all bring food and drinks... it normally means we all get to bring each others food home after the parties.. the booze and soft drinks (we always have DDs) is always consumed... :)

That leads to flip cup. http://www.flip-cup.com/PlayFlipCup.jpg
Which leads to people having fun, sometimes getting naked. http://thumb12.webshots.net/t/57/57/0/78/19/2582078190087930332SQokBG_th.jpg

Best drinking game around because you drink whether you win or lose and the pauses between rounds are usually pretty short.

Wow, they call them bring and shares in England? It sounds so proper :laugh:

Dave, in North Carolina, where the BEST BBQ of all time is made, we call them BBQ or a Pig Pickin'. At a Pig Pickin, they slaughter a hog and cook it over a flame, then marinate it in BBQ sauce, then take it to a party. They put the hog over a spinning rotisserie (spelling sucks I know), then light a fire underneath and you "pick" what you want off. It sounds nasty, but it's seriously sooo good.

And yes I love cookouts or BBQs, esp if volleyball is involved. The food is always awesome. I don't think I've ever been to a bad cookout.

Spiritwalker

Yeah.. agreed.. that's about the biggest "redneck" thing about me. I was lucky enough to have moved around the country alot when I was growing up that I don't have the southern accent.

But I loves me some pig pickins...

This has always been something I've wondered about, but why does 'everyone and their mother' think people from NC are rednecks?

Maybe it's just a stereotype. It's actually cool and unique, I guess, but that's always been a label I just can't seem to shake...
